VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35I’ll make Tamiya’s Valentine tank this time. It is a part of a partially connected caterpillar. I suppose it is a relatively recent release item.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35The chassis is built from boards to a box. However, there is a place to reinforce and parts inside, so I don’t have to worry about it.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35For the time being, the assembly of the AFV body has been completed.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35The bottom of the tank looks like this. I don’t know much about the structure of a Valentine tank and this suspension, so I wonder what kind of parts will come next.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35It’s complicated.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI was worried that all of the rollers with different diameters would be grounded. I was able to get this done without any trouble by concentrating and making an arrangement.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGOnly one side of the partially connected track has been attached. The slack is just right.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI installed the track belt parts on both sides safely.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe slack expression of the track belt is wonderful. If you’re building a Russian military vehicle, it won’t have a side skirt, so you’ll be able to enjoy this superb expression even after it’s completed.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThis track is quite easy to assemble among the kits that use the partial connection.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGSince the slack is hidden in the side skirt of the British tank, I took a picture from both sides.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThis time, it will be made by the British army of the North African front, so I will finish it with a side skirt though it is a little pity. I thought this model had a good caterpillar with a partial connection.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe turret is quite small. It looks like I will start the painting process soon.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThe body color of this valentine tank is sand yellow because it is on the North African front line. The manual says TS-46 light sand. What color is Creos? Some possible candidates: RLM 79 Sand Yellow 119, Tan 44, Sandy Brown 19. Sandy Brown looks the best among these. Dark yellow will look like a German tank, I think a little reddish-brown with gradation would make it look like an English tank.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThis Tamiya kit has two British tank soldiers. I am replacing it with a resin head and painting it. Is the Commander on the left?

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGTank soldiers don’t have much equipment, so it’s easy to paint. There is still a long way to go because the painting still leaves their faces.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThis tank has a fairly complicated configuration. The chassis is also complicated, so if I paint it in black, the remaining paint will not show up. In my case, the original purpose is to use it as a base for black-and-white gradation coating.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThis time, I mixed a little white with No. 19 Sandy Brown of Creos and applied airbrush coating. I thought I left some dark areas with gradation coating, after finishing it, I can hardly distinguish the gradation.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGWell, I was trying to paint the interior of this tank with a matte white. But I couldn’t see inside, so I stopped because it was meaningless. When I looked at the instruction manual later, there was no instruction for painting inside the chassis, so I misunderstood.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGSo I painted the inside of the turret matte white. The hatch is wide, so I think I can see the inside a little from the gap even if 2 tank soldiers are on it. I think it’s enough to see from above.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKIn excerpts from Tamiya’s manual, the Valentine infantry tanks Mk. I, Mk.II and Mk.IV looks almost the same except for the engines they carry. Mk. I did not participate in the actual battle because of many initial failures but was sent mainly for defense in England. Mk. II and IV were sent mainly to the North African front for a mortal struggle against the German army.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKMk. II and Mk. IV is for 2 people with smaller turrets, and Mk. III and Mk. V is for 3 people with larger turrets. Mk. II and Mk. IV were used most of the time.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKWhile I was making it, I felt that it was quite a small tank body, the manual Tamiya says that the tank body was made as small as possible to control the increase in weight instead of making the armor thicker. If the tank gets too big and heavy, the engine will be burdened and the speed won’t increase.

The tanks themselves were supplied in hot North Africa, in damp Burma (now Myanmar), and in Russia, they were operating in the frigid weather, so they must have been excellent as well.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKBecause of the severe climate in North Africa, I weathered it relatively hard. It became a little old tank.

VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK VALENTINE Mk.II/IV BRITISH INFANTRY TANK TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKI chipped with a thin brush and sponge for the first time in a while. I think it has become one pattern, but the dark rust-colored chipping is noticeable and good for brighter tank body color.

It’s too tight for two people.
